    Hey guys!

    Last week saw at walmart a can of 3M Bondo body filler at the car section

    I was wondering if that could work to fill different parts where needed? for example, on a alternator reshell

    I've read of people in Radicons using Bondo for customs, but I can't remember who at the moment.

    It might work. I was using some on my motorcycle, and thought to try some with styrene, it pulled right off the styrene, but perhaps w/ some sanding, it would stick better/

    I tried using some once when customizing 1/24 scale model cars. It worked okay, but was too much effort and I rarely finished any of those.
    Today, I'd use MilliPut.
